This uplifting little book tells the true life stories of a few dogs who were lucky enough to be rescued and fostered until good homes could be found. TOLD SIMPLY, MOSTLY FROM THE LOVEABLE DOGS’ POINTS OF VIEW, THIS DELIGHTFUL BOOK SPEAKS ALSO FOR CHILDREN WHO GO THROUGH THE FOSTER CARE/ADOPTION SYSTEM. Some kids and pets have a rough journey before they get a safe, loving home. Some have to be placed a couple of times before getting a good fit. We wish all of them could be born lucky and always be happy! There needs to be enough good, “forever” homes for every pet that is born. (‘FOREVER” MEANS “FOREVER,” NOT “WHILE IT IS CONVENIENT.” IT MEANS “EVEN WHEN THE PET GETS OLD OR SICK.” IT MEANS, WHEN YOU MOVE, YOU TAKE THE PET WITH YOU.) Until then, good and kind people need to provide rescue, shelter, foster, and adoption services for those who get an unlucky break. For pets, MUCH of the answer is taking the responsibility to protect them, not let them run loose, vaccinate them, and to spay or neuter them. (A neutered or spayed pet lives a longer, healthier life and does NOT create MORE pets that need homes.) Rescue, fostering and adoption are hard work. Sometimes sad. LOVE is what keeps those animal welfare people trying. Most are volunteers. They LIVE for the happy endings! A loving heart is a loving heart, no matter in what chest it beats.

Winner of the Jesse H. Jones Award for Best Work of Fiction from the Texas Institute of Letters * A San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book of 2015 * Fiction Finalist for the 2015 Writers’ League of Texas Book Awards * A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2015 * One of the Texas Observer’s “Five Books We Loved in 2015” * One of PRI’s “The World’s Five Books You Should Read in 2016” “Profound and wrenching…A deeply moving chronicle of one family’s collective devastation, full of remarkable wisdom and humor” (The New York Times Book Review) that follows the members of a wealthy Mexican family after their patriarch is kidnapped. On an unremarkable night, José Victoriano Arteaga—the head of a thriving Mexico City family—vanishes on his way home from work. The Arteagas find few answers; the full truth of what happened to Arteaga is lost to the shadows of Mexico’s vast underworld. But soon packages arrive to the family house, offering horrifying clues. Fear, guilt, and the prospect of financial ruin fracture the once-proud family and scatter them across the globe, yet delicate threads still hold them together: in a swimming pool in Palo Alto, Arteaga’s grandson struggles to make sense of the grief that has hobbled his family; in Mexico City, Arteaga’s mistress alternates between rage and heartbreak as she waits, in growing panic, for her lover’s return; in Austin, the Arteagas’ housekeeper tries to piece together a second life in an alienating new land; in Madrid, Arteaga’s son takes his dog through the hot and unforgiving streets, in search of his father’s ghost. A stunningly original exploration of the wages of a hidden war, Barefoot Dogs is a heartfelt elegy to the stolen innocence of every family struck by tragedy. Urgent and vital fiction, “these powerful stories are worthy of rereading in order to fully digest the far-reaching implications of one man’s disappearance…this singular book affords the reader the chance to step inside a world of privilege and loss, and understand how the two are inextricably intertwined” (San Francisco Chronicle).

From the best-selling author who offers “the most utterly compelling translation of dog to human I have ever seen” (Jeffrey Masson), a joyful chronicle of a dog that is also a groundbreaking answer to the question: How can we give our dogs the happiest, healthiest lives? When Ted Kerasote was ready for a new dog after losing his beloved Merle — who died too soon, as all our dogs do — he knew that he would want to give his puppy Pukka the longest life possible. But how to do that? So much has changed in the way we feed, vaccinate, train, and live with our dogs from even a decade ago. In an adventure that echoes The Omnivore’s Dilemma with a canine spin, Kerasote tackles all those subjects, questioning our conventional wisdom and emerging with vital new information that will surprise even the most knowledgeable dog lovers. Can a purebred be as healthy as a mixed-breed? How many vaccines are too many? Should we rethink spaying and neutering? Is raw food really healthier than kibble, and should your dog be chewing more bones? Traveling the world and interviewing breeders, veterinarians, and leaders of the animal-welfare movement, Kerasote pulls together the latest research to help us rethink the everyday choices we make for our companions. And as he did in Merle's Door, Kerasote interweaves fascinating science with the charming stories of raising Pukka among his dog friends in their small Wyoming village. Funny, revelatory, and full of the delights of falling in love with a dog, Pukka’s Promise will help redefine the potential of our animal partners.
